Generation of Random Variates



generates random variates from over 870 univariate distributions

disnorm_pdf(n, nmin, sigma, nmax)
% disnorm_pdf.m  is the Discrete Normal Probability Density.
%   See "Generating NonUniform Random Variables", Chap. 3, L. Devroye.

function [pdf] = disnorm_pdf(n, nmin, sigma, nmax)

%persistent sumpdf

    sumpdf = 0;
    for jn = nmin:nmax
        sumpdf = sumpdf + exp(-((abs(jn)+1/2)^2/(2*sigma^2)));
pdf = exp(-((abs(n)+1/2)^2/(2*sigma^2))) / sumpdf;
